UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who left early Friday morning, agreed on the need to speed things up, but insisted that applies to both parties.
“I’ve been stressing that we want a deal that’s going to work for the UK and for our European partners and that if we work together we can support each other’s prosperity and security. Now we’re going to be publishing our white paper shortly and I want to see the negotiations accelerating and intensifying thereafter. We are ready to intensify and accelerate the pace of negotiations. I want to see that from the European Commission and the European Union as well.”
May was due to hold a cabinet meeting on Friday that has been billed as a make-or-break opportunity.
